sorry, perhaps I didn't express myself clearly enough.
originally, I generally just went to one page for pretty much everything - the home page - and opened articles/threads of interest directly from
there. I knew where everything was on the page (kinda), and scrolled to what I wanted quickly.
now my behavior is modified - I go to one page - can't find what I'm looking for - so go to two or three others instead.
I'm sure you will be familiar with the supermarket tactics of changing the shop layout - forcing consumers to meander around and being 'sold' to in
the process. It's a science. There may be no more 'advertising' in the new layout - but the behavior of the shopper is modified so that the
advertising is more effective. We have some supermarkets here, where it's almost impossible to shop quickly - where the path has been forced to go
past several aisles. I was musing whether that was the intention (call me a suspicious conspiracy theorist ;-) - who'd have thought).
Hey, I'll modify my behavior in time, and will figure out how to find what I want in reasonable time I guess.
The site is still pretty usable. It loads quick for me.
Are you guys ever going to create a m.abovetopsecret.com mobile site? That'd be cool.
